Respecting Others I ride purely, and only because it is fun. I ride because I enjoy the freedom From being exposed to the elements, The vulnerability to the danger that is intrinsic to riding. I do not ride because it is fashionable to do so. I ride my Harley, not wearing it. My Harley is not a symbol of status. It exists simply for me, and me alone. My Harley is not a toy. It is an extension of my being, Of which I will treat it accordingly, With the same respect as I have for myself Striving to understand the inner-workings of my Harley, From the most basic to the most complex To learn everything I can about my Harley, So that I am reliant upon no one but myself for its health and well being To constantly better my skills of control over my Harley Learn its limits, Using my skill to become one with my Harley So that we may keep each other alive I am the master it is the servant Working together in harmony, we will become an invincible team. I do not fear death. I will, however, do all possible to avoid death prematurely. Fear is the enemy, not death. Fear on the highway leads to death, therefore I will not let fear be my master. I will master it. My Harley will outlive me. Therefore, they are my legacy. I will care for them for future bikers to cherish as I have cherished them, whoever they may be. I do not ride to gain attention, Respect, or fear from those that do NOT ride, Nor do I wish to intimidate or annoy them. For those that do not know me, all I wish from them is to ignore me. For those that desire to know me, I will share with them the truth of myself, So that they might understand me and not fear others like me. I will never be the aggressor on the highway. However, should others mess with me, their aggression will be dealt with In as severe a manner as I can cast upon them. I will show respect to other bikers more experienced or knowledgeable than I am. I will learn from them all I can. I will not show disrespect to any other bikers less experienced or Knowledgeable than I am, I will teach them what I can. It will be my task to mentor new riders, that so desire, Into the lifestyle of the biker, so that the breed shall continue I shall instruct them, As I have been instructed by those before me. I shall preserve and honor traditions of bikers before me, And I will pass them on unaltered. I will not judge other bikers on their choice of Harley?s, Their appearance, or their profession Nor will I judge them only on their conduct as bikers, I am proud of my accomplishments as a biker, though I will not flaunt them to others. If they ask, I will share them. Will stand ready to help any other biker that truly needs my help. Nor will I ask another biker to do for me what I can do for myself. I don?t see myself as a part-time biker. I am a biker when, and wherever I go. Proud to be a biker, and I hide my chosen lifestyle from no one. Mostly because I love the freedom, and the independence, The movement of the ground beneath me But most of all! I ride to better understand myself, My Harley, the lands in which I ride upon, And to seek out other bikers like myself. Just so that I can let them know Since legends like Harley Davidson?s Never really die?
